What’s on hand for the new device? Well it comes with a 120Hz refresh rate as well as a 480Hz touch sampling rate. There’s physical shoulder triggers, 5000mAh battery, and a 67W charger, things you’d expect for a gaming device. 

In terms of the SoC of choice, they’ve opted to utilize the 6nm Dimensity 1200 chipset. For RAM, there’s up to 12GB RAM that’s paired with up to 256GB of internal storage. For cooling the device down, it seems that they are using a combination of graphene, graphite, and a vapor chamber to cool things off when you’re gaming.

On the front, it sports a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel that offers 10-bit colours, HDR10+ support, as well as DCI-P3 coverage, which is pretty impressive. Switching to the back, it comes with a 64MP Quad-Bayer main camera, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and finally a 2MP macro sensor. The dual speakers are tuned by JBL and you get Hi-Res and Dolby Atmos support.
